As a Republican Assembly candidate, I believe in a comprehensive approach to immigration policy that upholds the rule of law, strengthens our national security, and addresses the needs of both our economy and society. My position on immigration policy includes the following key components:

Border Security: Ensuring the security of our borders is essential to maintaining our nation's sovereignty and public safety. I support investing in effective border security measures, such as advanced technology, infrastructure, and personnel, to prevent illegal crossings and deter criminal activities like drug and human trafficking.

Legal Immigration System Reform: Our current legal immigration system is complex and outdated. I advocate for reforms that make the process more efficient, transparent, and merit-based. By streamlining the system, we can attract skilled workers, entrepreneurs, and others who will contribute positively to our economy and society.

DACA Recipients: I recognize the unique situation of DACA recipients, many of whom were brought to the United States as children and have grown up as Americans. I support finding a compassionate, legislative solution that provides legal certainty for these individuals, allowing them to continue contributing to our society without fear of deportation.

Temporary Worker Programs: I believe in expanding and improving temporary worker programs that allow foreign workers to fill labor shortages in industries such as agriculture, construction, and hospitality. By creating legal pathways for workers to enter and exit the country as needed, we can support our economy, discourage illegal immigration, and ensure that American workers are not displaced.

Enforcement and Compliance: Upholding the rule of law is crucial. I support strengthening the enforcement of existing immigration laws, as well as encouraging compliance by implementing mandatory E-Verify for employers. This will help prevent the exploitation of undocumented workers and protect jobs for American citizens.

Addressing the Undocumented Population: We need a practical solution for the millions of undocumented immigrants currently residing in the United States. I advocate for a process that allows law-abiding, tax-paying individuals to earn legal status, while prioritizing the deportation of those with criminal records or who pose a threat to national security.

By taking a comprehensive approach to immigration policy, I am confident that we can create a system that is fair, secure, and beneficial to all Nevadans and Americans.
